"When my brother came in to Stormont Vail Health to be treated, everyone was super nice and helpful from the ED, all the way to the ICU. What I witnessed Stormont Vail do for him made me want to work for this organization. I applied so that I can be a part of the crew too, why not go where the love is. I became a Registrar for Stormont Vail Health four years ago. My manager understands me, I love my job and coworkers, and it’s so comfortable coming to work and doing what I do best. I’m a people person and this is my home away from home. There’s always room and opportunity to grow.
So, do I love working for Stormont Vail? Why, yes I do!"

At Stormont Vail, I feel that I have worked closely with professionals that I can learn from and that they will push me to take on new and challenging tasks. Daily, I am treated with respect and dignity, by coworkers and other team members throughout the hospital. From Dr. Kenagy, to directors and supervisors, I often feel encouraged and empowered to assist in the mission of 'working together to improve the health of our community'."
"When I first started working at Stormont Vail Health a few years ago, I recognized that I had never received such amazing training. Even as a seasoned nurse, I was given the best chance for success by breaking down my training into calculated intervals. When I became eligible for classes to grow my knowledge in caring for our patient population, I was sent by my department manager without any hesitation. Stormont Vail wants you to succeed. I never want to work anywhere else again, nothing beats Stormont Vail by a long shot."

I think the Stormont Vail Health team takes pride in their work and are invested in improving the health of the people we serve.
I look forward to coming to work because I know we deliver quality care."
"During the pandemic, I was asked to go back and help the hospital. I had been away from hospital work for about a year both times I went. When I stepped back onto the pavilion, it was as if I had never left. The friends I had made and the skills I had learned came back immediately. This is the feeling I have had for the last 18 years at Stormont Vail. People remember you. They remember what you do, what you have done, and better yet, what you are capable of. Everyone, no matter what department, what building, or what town they are located in, we are family.
This organization has helped me grow into the person I am today. People know me as a wife, mother, nurse, and leader, but most of all, they know who I am. I am not a number to them;
I am Diane Flerlage, BSN, RN."

Transformational Leadership & Organizational Development
"Stormont Vail Health has given me so many opportunities and has allowed me to grow in my career. I have met some of the most wonderful people and made great friends along the way.
I started in the lab as a phlebotomist, got my LPN and worked at the Heart Center, got my ADN and moved over to Single Day Surgery. Now I am the Charge Nurse at Single Day Surgery and just finished my BSN. While on this fabulous journey, I was able to utilize Stormont Vail's Education Reimbursement program in order to help with the cost of my continued education. I love working at Stormont Vail and am excited for the future."
"When I think about why I love working at Stormont Vail Health, the first thing that pops into my head is that I have been here for almost 10 years! That fact alone floors me, as it doesn’t feel anywhere near that long. They say time flies when you are having fun and there is certainly some truth in that statement.
I have been at Stormont through thick and thin and they have been there with me the whole way. The real reason that I love my job is that I get to help people. My job isn’t patient facing, but I help the people that help the people."
"Every department I have worked in at Stormont Vail Health has been full of people who work hard and appreciate the efforts of others. Team members are patient focused, while passing on the same caring attitude to those around them.

Patient Care Technician
"I love working for Stormont Vail Health because of my team and my patients. I feel as a team we come to work every day with the same purpose, which is to take care of our patients to the best of our ability. I feel like our team is more than just co-workers, we have become almost like a tiny village.
I have also enjoyed the relationships I have developed with my patients over the years. Some, I have even gotten to know a lot of their family members and friends because they refer them here to see us because of the exceptional care we give. I am proud to be afforded the opportunity to be part of the Urology team at Stormont Vail."
"Over 12 years ago, while working outside of health care IT and new to Topeka, my son was born at Stormont Vail Health. He graduated from the NICU after several weeks of diligent care. The NICU nurses were amazing, and I recall nudging my wife during a NICU visit and whispering, “I have to get a computer job here! The people here are super smart and caring!” Now, a decade has passed since joining IT here.
At Stormont Vail, I’m able to implement and optimize solutions across all areas. It is fun working with clinical gurus, helping build integrations that let their teams perform at their peak so they can focus on patients. I love working here because I can use my IT skills to be part of a patient’s story, even though I’ll never come face-to-face with a patient. In person, I may not be able to handle blood, but I can spin up some computer code that can exchange details about what’s in it.
I’m improving the health of our community behind a keyboard and mouse."
"I love working at Stormont Vail Health because of the amazing and hardworking staff here. I love how the different departments work together to improve patient safety. I love how staff members are so willing to help out any way that they can. For example, when non-clinical staff helped in the Express Cares during the COVID surge. Working at Stormont Vail has taught me a lot and I love working here."
